The NXT Conference is planned in conjunction with the 9th NEU NOW Festival taking place 14-17 September 2017 at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
If you are interested in discussing entrepreneurship in the arts and how higher art education institutions are approaching it, this is the event for you. You will hear as well about how entrepreneurial initiatives are developing new models of education outside the art academies. Furhtermore, the conference delegates will be involved in dynamic debates on social impact, social innovation and sustainable practices in the arts.
If you think you have an innovative practice to share, as for example, a model/method of teaching entrepreneurship in the arts, please send a brief description of your activities or a full presentation proposal (about 300 words) to barbara.revelli[at]elia-artschools.org.
Registration is opening in April.
More information about the programme will be published shortly.
The NXT Conference Steering Group will review and evaluate your submission, on the base of availability and content fitting with the programme.
